Frankly, I’d rather face an alien invasion than the UN. The former would at least be an enemy most could agree was actually present. If the UN wasn’t so serious about global governance, I’d laugh. This naturally has nothing to do with the reality of space aliens. It’s just another potential point of manipulation (not to mention mindlessly wasteful spending of everyone’s money down the road) for the UN.
But if they decide on Jimmy Carter, I’d approve sending him on a long term mission of contact into outer space.
